Apple MacBook Pro 15in (MC723B/A)

 

Faster CPUs, more powerful graphics and Thunderbolt come together to make the MacBook Pro a compelling portable workstation.

Fast CPUs ; Good graphics performance ; Thunderbolt ; Beautiful chassis design

Expensive ; No Thunderbolt devices available at launch

If you can afford the admittedly high asking price, the MacBook Pro has a lot to offer. In terms of hardware, it's on par with any equivalent PC based laptop and adds in its own unique feature in the shape of ThunderBolt. The key point, though, is that...

Apple MacBook Pro (Late 2011)

 

The 13-inch Apple MacBook Pro, until recently, was a bit of a misnomer. There wasn't much Pro about a Core 2 Duo processor and the Sandy-Bridge-packing 15- and 17-inch options out specced it massively. It felt like a bulkier MacBook Air and in some...

Power, power, power, design, battery, screen

Not cheap, no Blu-ray

It might have been a relatively quiet upgrade for the 13-inch MacBook Pro, but it is most definitely a necessary one. Sandy Bridge does the job of speeding the laptop up to the degree that it again feels like a piece of pro kit.

MacBook Pro 15"

 

The 15inch MacBook Pro is the best looking, best performing, most desirable laptop out there, but can you justify a  price tag of over £1850?

Apple MacBook Pro 2011 review

 

The iPad and iPhone may have grabbed all the headlines lately, but Apple has also been selling record numbers of its Mac computers in recent months.

Impressive performance and battery life; next-generation Thunderbolt I/O technology; dual-mode graphics for performance or longer battery life

Expensive; heavy; battery not user-replaceable

Apple's update MacBook Pro line brings both improved performance and battery life, as well as debuting the speedy Thunderbolt I/O technology. While the 13in model will probably sell more at £999, this 15in model has enough clout to ensure that it earns...

Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Late 2011)

 

The Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch gets new hardware and software, including a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, AMD Radeon GPU, and OS X Lion, while keeping everything that works well, like the thin and stylish unibody design.

Updated quad-core Core i7 processor. Powerful AMD GPU with more dedicated memory. OS X Lion is superb. Improved battery life

Competitors offer lower prices and larger feature sets

Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011 review: Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011

 

Apple MacBook Pro Fall 2011

Incremental updates to the CPU help keep the ; line a step above the now-mainstream MacBook Air. The trackpad and gesture controls are still the best of any current laptop.

Unless you need an optical drive, the MacBook Air may be a better fit for most, and the Pro still lacks things we'd like to see, such as HDMI, Blu-ray, and USB 3.0.

A MacBook Pro is a significant investment, especially when adding in optional upgrades. Cost aside, there's not a better choice (there are, however, some close ties) for an all-around powerhouse that will work in the home, the office, and in between.

Apple MacBook Pro Winter 2011 review: Apple MacBook Pro Winter 2011

 

Apple MacBook Pro Winter 2011

The CPU updates to the 13-inch ; offer big leaps in performance. The machine has phenomenal battery life, and excellent ergonomics, keyboard, and large, smooth, multitouch trackpad are still among the best available. It also comes with 720p HD Webcam.

Graphics performance is slightly worse than last year's 13-inch Pro. The 13-inch screen resolution is still low compared with the MacBook Air. The Thunderbolt port is an unknown quantity until accessories become available. There are limited upgrade...

The new entry-level $1,199 13-inch MacBook Pro's significant CPU updates and fantastic battery life are nearly as good as what you get in the more expensive $1,499 version.

Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro (Late 2011) Review

 

The early 2011 MacBook Pro is honestly Apple's best effort to date. Only using quad-core CPUs on the 15 and 17-inch models, and offering an optional Thunderbolt Display that can act as a modern day dock makes this platform, particularly the 15-inch...

The next two years aren't going to be easy on anyone's wallet.
